    Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau announced that she is resigning in the wake of the officer-involved shooting of an Australian bride-to-be. "[L]ast Saturday’s tragedy, as well as some other recent incidents, have caused me to engage in deep reflection," Harteau said in part in a statement posted on the police department's Facebook page. She continued: "The recent incidents do not reflect the training and procedures we’ve developed as a Department. Despite the MPD’s many accomplishments under my leadership over these years and my love for the City, I have to put the communities we serve first. I’ve decided I am...

    RUSH: You know, this is funny to watch. Sean Spicer resigns, and the Drive-Bys are beside themselves. The entire Washington establishment is just out of control over this. They can talk about nothing else. What do you think the percentage of the American people who are hanging on this thread with bated breath about Sean Spicer resigning is? I’ll betcha it’s not even 5%. This is a great illustration of the disconnect that exists. Spicer resigns, the Drive-Bys are excited! They think they caused it, number one. They think it means Trump’s falling apart, number two. They think the Trump...

    snip At a 10 a.m. meeting this morning, President Trump offered Scaramucci the job as White House Communications Director. Spicer quit after that meeting, according to the NYT's Glenn Thrush. "This was the last straw," said a source close to Spicer. The objection of the press secretary and his allies was that Scaramucci would hold the title, while Spicer would be expect to continue to carry out many of the duties related to strategy and planning. "Sean was going to be expected to serve as press secretary while also being the quasi-comms director," the source said. After the Oval Office...

    Deseret News ^ | May 29, 2017 | Ernest Istook
    Utahns are consulting the U.S. Constitution more than usual because of Congressman Jason Chaffetz’s resignation. A vacancy in the House of Representatives is unique among all federal offices because it must be filled by an election. No appointments are permitted for membership in what is often called “The People’s House.” Federal judges are chosen by the president, with Senate confirmation of the appointment. The same is true for Cabinet officers. Governors may make appointments to fill Senate vacancies. Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich infamously tried to auction the Senate seat vacated when Barack Obama was elected president; that’s why Blagojevich...

    Fox News star Sean Hannity is looking to leave the network and may be out by the end of the week, according to a Daily Beast report. Hannity was a long-time ally of Fox News co-president Bill Shine, who resigned from the network Monday morning. Hannity defended Shine on Twitter as the executive came under scrutiny for his role in Fox’s sexual harassment controversy since Roger Ailes’ departure from the network last summer. In a series of tweets last week, Hannity said that Shine’s departure would be “the total end of the FNC as we know it,” and used the...

    AP ^ | DAVID BAUDER
    Fox News Channel said Monday that co-president Bill Shine is out, the latest high-level departure at a network beset with charges of harassment and discrimination that have already claimed founding CEO Roger Ailes, leading personality Bill O'Reilly and a top financial executive. Shine was not accused of any direct wrongdoing. But the longtime Ailes lieutenant was considered vulnerable because of claims that he looked the other way as charges of toxic workplace behavior piled up, with some believing that the network would never truly be able to move on without him and other Ailes loyalists. His leadership experience learned at...

    Here we go again... From day one of the Trump candidacy, I’ve said “If he denies the Democrats a Supreme Court appointment, his presidency is worth it.” No matter what else happens, the SCOTUS was and is the key to salvaging the country. Had Hillary been allowed to alter it, it would have been disastrous. Fortunately, President Trump won and Neil Gorsuch is now on the bench. Now, people are starting to wonder just how many bites at the Supreme Court apple Trump is going to get. He’s already had one. If Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is right, a second...
